Overcoming Clouded Vision

Cataracts, characterized by the clouding of the eye's natural lens, can cause significant vision impairment among older adults. This cloudiness can result from aging, injury, or diseases, leading to a gradual decline in vision. Symptoms typically include blurred vision, difficulty seeing in low light, and colors appearing faded or yellowed.

Macular Degeneration:
Protecting Central Vision

Macular degeneration is a condition that affects the central part of the retina (the macula) and leads to loss of central vision. This disease is most commonly associated with aging and can occur in dry and wet forms. The thinning of the macula characterizes the dry form and can gradually lead to vision loss without treatment. The wet form, more severe, involves the growth of abnormal blood vessels under the retina, which can leak fluids and cause damage.

Getting Ahead of Vision Loss

Glaucoma is known as the "silent thief of sight" because it often progresses without noticeable symptoms until significant vision loss occurs. It results from damage to the optic nerve, usually caused by increased pressure in the eye. Glaucoma can affect people of all ages but is most common in older adults.
